Does the Dealer Have an Obligation to Tell Buyer New Car Was Painted?
I own a '98 Eclipse Spyder. Bought it new and it has black paint. I hand wash the car weekly, wax it 3 to 4 times a year and it is garage kept. Recently, I have noticed a haze developing (thousand of tiny dots underneath the clearcoat finish) on the trunk lid and now, slightly on the hood. This has just begun to develop. My first thought is the car may have been damaged in someway before I bought it and the dealer had the trunk and hood painted. My question is, does the dealer have an obligation to tell the buyer that the car has been repainted? Any law that anyone is aware of? My other thought is that the factory paint job is beginning to fail. If it is failing, I would hope that the dealer would provide some compensation since the car just turned 4 years old last month.
